doing well at the moment. It has changed its color from dull dormant green to perkier lively green and some blossoms are starting to show. Most dominating at this point are the manzanitas.  This may all change this weekend, however, when it is forecast that snow may be down to sea level here. Will we be in trouble? We shall see..For the moment, here are some new blooms using a new iPhone app I got called Photo Studio.

The California Dutchman’s Pipe vine (Aristolochia californica) is more profuse this year with its blossoms, but I still have the same lament as last year. No pipevine swallowtail butterflies. Where, oh where, can they be?

Gordon Gooseberry (Ribes meniesii var. hystrix) with its lovely little pink flowers.

Chalk Dudleya (Dudeya pulverulenta) showing its winter-wear with one of its blossoms beginning to peak out.

Mr. Cliff hasn’t made an appearance here for a while. He insisted on being included, since he too has been enjoying the garden. He regrets that he will have to remain inside all weekend, but snow is just not his thing any way you look at it…

Cliff (cat) the beast…

This is an excellent iPhoneography blog. So much to learn…
